Firehouse Theatre Announces 2020-2021 A SEASON OF DISCOVERY
Firehouse Theatre has announced their 2020-2021 SEASON OF DISCOVERY, when they all will be learning to adapt to extreme and turbulent circumstances, and artists will explore new ways of making and sharing performance.
Their 27th season includes eight world premiere plays and a diverse range of other projects in our three series -- FIREHOUSE PLAYS, FIREHOUSE FRINGE, and FIREHOUSE STUDIO.
At this challenging time, when the future is so uncertain, dates for all productions are fluid. They will communicate specific schedules as soon as they can. Whenever possible, productions will be available as both LIVE / socially distant controlled performances at Firehouse and via remote streaming.
